Deducing that the individual or their organisation ran Debian, I might then scan or probe the domain which issued to vacation mail to ascertain if they were vulnerable. Having all the information I needed to take advantage of the vulnerability in the DSA, I might then attack said individual or their organisation, safe in the knowledge that they would not be back in the office to deal with the problem until August 25th. Such vacation mails would make my job alot easier.
